I recently installed "cross/i386-linux" and have used it to successfully
cross-compile numerous linux binary applications with NetBSD.
However, wheneven I run any application that calls "gethostbyname", the
linux binary crashes with a segmentation fault. Statically linking
"/usr/pkg/cross/ix86-linux/lib/libresolv.a" does not help and the binary
still gets the seg-fault.
But when I compile the exact same code on a SuSE linux machine, the binary
is able to successfully call gethostbyname, and does not crash.
Any suggestions on how to fix or work around this?
Thanks in advance.
